We've been hearing about the possibility for a while and now, we know it's official.

It started when "Jak & Daxter HD" popped up at a South African game retailer's website. Then Germany's game ratings board listed something called the "Jak & Daxter Trilogy Edition." Well, it was about time to clear things up.

SCEA confirmed to IGN that in fact, the Jak & Daxter Trilogy is real and it'll be coming to the PlayStation 3, presumably some time next year. Here's the statement:

"We can confirm the Jak and Daxter Collection is coming and will have more news to share shortly."

Jak & Daxter was one of the PS2's first platforming gems and since then, the two heroes have gone their separate ways. However, fans have been pining for a reunion for a long time, and Naughty Dog has gone on record saying they'd love to deliver a high-definition overhaul. HD remakes are popular this generation and J&D definitely deserves that high-gloss attention, don't you think?

Will ND be involved or is this done by someone else?
Never played the originals, might give this a try, I mean it's ND so…

I think it might be that company Bluepoint who is bringing out most all HD remakes. They don't really mess with the source material. Just add trophies and update graphics. 🙂

Thanks for clarifying, I had no idea this Bluepoint studio is the one doing the HD remakes, will look it up.

This is great, this series is a gem, though can't say I would purchase it since I already own all three and the racing game for the PS2.

Sony, why must you make so much awesome stuff? My wallet hates you so much right now.

So, Naughty Dog, I will soon own all your games. Crash Bandicoot 1 – 3, and Crash Team Racing. Uncharted trilogy, and now Jak and Daxter trilogy in HD for PS3.

Sony had better make the PS4 backwards compatible, there's just too many awesome games on PS3 to give up.

One of the best series on the PS2 for me. I remember being SO excited for the third installment when it released. Good times! I will be pre-ordering this collection, it deserves to be in my collection! 😀

Bah, what's up with all these re-releases. With all these great *new* games, why would I want to spend money on recycled ones?

Alot of people "miss" playing these kind of games on these hot titles that were on the PS2.
Of course we all can't play every single PS2 game.

FIN-A-FRIGGIN'-LLY!!! Can't wait for this. As soon as Gamestop allows pre-orders, $40 down and waiting.

Never played through the series (well, the first Jak and Daxter for about 20 minutes and loved what I played) but Naughty Dog = kickass game developer so that's enough for me.

Now all I want to see is Ratchet & Clank, Kingdom Hearts, Max Payne, Shadow Hearts, and Dark Cloud all in HD. Then I'll finally retire my PS2.

I am excited for this collection. I never played the originals so playing them for the first time in HD will be a treat. I still haven't bought the Sly Collection. Slacking on my HD purchases. Jak and Daxter HD, Sly Collection HD, MGS HD and The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection are must buys for me. Like DanceMachine55 said, the PS4 better be backwards compatible!!
